Christ Enthroned in the centre makes a sign of blessing with his right hand and holds an open  Gospel Book in his other hand. To the left and to the right stand the Mother of God and St John the Forerunner, their hands raised in prayer. Behind the throne are the archangels Gabriel and Michael and the saints Peter and Paul. Kneeling at Christ’s feet are a patriarch and a monk.
